$$$$Perfect For:Casual Weeknight DinnerDining Solo

Included In

Piggyback is an “Asian inspired” restaurant from the people behind Pig and Khao, and it’s one of the best dining options within walking distance of Penn Station. They serve things like lumpia, lamb rendang, and a big bowl of medai crudo with grapfruit and crispy bits of pork, and - whatever you go with - you should start your meal with a pair of curry puffs. They’re flaky, crispy, and packed with well-seasoned beef. Grab some dinner here before or after a show at the Garden, or stop by for a drink and a snack with a friend. The space has mural-covered walls and a big bar up front, and the soundtrack includes everything from hip hop to disco.
